Default Re: Building a new system from the ground up

Thank you then, the Water cooling will be something I do not need to invest in. From what I have heard the Armor cases run pretty cool anyway. So maybe I just will not fuss with it then. Thanks for the help. I will look into one of the other air options then. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good air system?

The HDT S1283 is easily one of the best coolers on the market right now. It performs nearly identical or surpasses many heatsinks that cost double to triple the amount.

Yup, it won't beat the TRUE, but man it'll get damn close to matching it. I wouldn't trade my Xiggy for anything

From most of the benchmarks I've seen, it performed within 2C-4C of the TRU120. Well worth the third of the price of the TRU120.

Absolutely. The TRUE looks damnnn perrrty but if you don't have a hundred bucks to drop on a hunk of copper, then the Xiggy is an amazing alternative.
